Your glass is dirty. The reason you don't get it from the ADF is because it uses a smaller different glass ahead of the glass that you use when you put it on the scanner. Clean the glass using a lint free cloth and some glass cleaner or, better yet, lens cleaner.

    And why the bad rating? You asked what the problem was and I told you. Clean the glass and it will work.

You're right. There is probably debris on the glass where the paper passes through. It's a common problem. You'll have to raise up the scanner so that you can see the glass. Then clean it off and you're back on business.

MFC-6490CW, photocopy of 11x17 document prints 8 1/2 x 11 full scale image on 11x17 sheet. The image is centered on the 8 1/2 dimension, and located at one end of the 17 dimension. The rest of the 11x17...


First make sure you are not using "fit to page" as this feature does not work for legal size documents. To fix this problem we need to check several things. First, Press Copy, Load your document, press 1 for number of copies, press the up/down arrow until you get to "paper size" then choose legal (for 11x17). Press OK
It is also possible that your machine is set to reduce/enlarge size to less/more than 100%. If the first solution did not work start over, press copy, load document, enter 1 for number of copies, press up/down arrow to choose "enlarge/reduce" then use right/left arrows to choose 100% (again, do not choose 'fit to page') press OK. Once you have done this, you can set these as default if you like. Press Copy, press up/down arrow to choose new setting, press OK, press 1 to choose YES, press stop/exit.

Print Problem - vertical lines


If the problem only occurs when using the document feeder, the problem is not usually caused by the drum. When using the document feeder, try to notice where the scanner (the light assembly under your scan glass)stops just before the paper is being fed. Some multifunction machines have a small piece of glass that is separate from the large scan glass and the scanner assembly stays parked underneith it as the original is being fed over it. Most likely there is something on the glass where the scanner parks as originals are being fed thru the feeder. When putting your original on the large scan glass to copy, the mark on the glass will only show as a spot, but will show as a vertical line thru the whole copy when using the feeder.

Brother MFC-5440CN Printer Problem


If this only happens when you are copying.

1. Your scanner glass is dirty. Open the lid, use windex to clean the flatbed. Look on the left side. You should see a strip of glass, with the scanner sitting under it. This strip is used when the document feed is being used. Make sure it is clean. Most common problem is getting a little whiteout or the sticky residue from scotch tape on this glass, which causes lines down your copies.

Clean it with alcohol which will dissolve the sticky stuff and the whiteout.

If this does not solve the problem, the CCD scanner in your machine might be going bad.
